6. You let your date determine your value
This can start as early as when you swipe through dating apps.
When I was single, I’d log on to dating apps and swipe away. I thought things were harmless until I realized how much I was addicted to getting a match. Then it occurred to me how horrible I felt once someone interesting went radio silence on me.
The same would go for in-person dating. A failed date made me think there was something wrong with me. Their disinterest equated to my worth.
But that’s not how human value works.
You are a magnificent, beautiful human being. No other person determines your value.
